Random jeep talk &thoughts

Ok so I now own my 7th jeep and I'm only 18yrs old. But don't get the wrong idea I've paid for everyone myself or traded up to it. Granted the first 4 were XJs and one badass ZJ (please don't hold that against me lol) and the first 3 were just woods toys before I was 16. I always wanted a wrangler though. Traded up to a YJ and fell in love with the wrangler experience. Sold it and bought yet another YJ that eventually traded up to the TJ I own now. I love this jeep and have poured some money into as most everyone has. How ever do to a wrestling injury I'm having knee surgery and won't be able to drive a straight shift for a few months minimum. I have a trade offer for a lifted Cherokee and a Cj7 together. I'm strongly considering it but I thought I'd get y'alls input first. If I were to sell the 2 I could get slightly more than what I was asking for my jeep. So thats not the issue. I'm just looking for input on the CJs and wondering if they require more upkeep than an other wrangler being older and such.

Idk the condition of the CJ you're talking about but a friend of mine has an 87 and its a freaking tank. It'll go anywhere off and on road.

Considering we know nothing about what's the condition of the jeeps .

I'm currently restoring an '80 CJ-5. I'll say one thing for sure; they're certainly A LOT easier to work on than my JK!

I think my JKUR is the most offroad capable 4x4 I've ever owned (and I've owned 6 4x4's). That said, my CJ-5 has run the Rubicon, the Dusy-Ershim trail, Pismo Beach sand dunes, and rock crawling in Moab and the Mojave Desert; nothing wrong with my CJ's offroad abilities!
